The University of Wisconsin Continuing Education and Extension offers opportunities for children ages 6-18 to participate in theatrical productions. Since 1993, such well known plays as Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Charlotte's Web, The Wizard of Oz, Cinderella, Peter Pan, Alice in Wonderland, Into the Woods, Hansel and Gretel, and Beauty and the Beast have given children valuable experience in what it means to be part of a live, theatrical production. Children learn valuable stage and life skills such as teamwork, responsibility and confidence.
See the Auditions & Involvement page for how to participate in and support Children's Theatre.
